Pierce Brosnan hunts Milla Jovovich in Survivor trailer

The first trailer has landed for Survivor, James McTeigue’s action thriller in which Milla Jovovich plays a Foreign Service Officer framed for a terrorist bombing. Worse still, she has Pierce Brosnan’s hitman on her tail, and he doesn’t seem the type to give up easily.

Codenamed “The Watchmaker”, Brosnan’s character is referred to as “one of the most wanted assassins in the world”. Good job Jovovich’s character can also handle herself then, isn’t it?

Take a look at the new trailer, below…

With its OTT action, breakneck pace and sterling supporting cast, this one looks like quite a lot of fun, all told. Nice to see Brosnan playing a villain for a change too…

Directed by McTeigue and co-starring Dylan McDermott, Angela Bassett and Robert Forster, Survivor will open in the US on 29 May 2015 and the UK on 5 June 2015.
